what's the deal with big group promotions at seminars?

It is how a lot of guys cop out of actual training under a real instructor. They hope with all thier fiber that the instructor will have everyone spar at the end of the seminar, and catch his eye with his overwhelming technique (ie: creaming a worse white belt) and shockingly award them a belt on the spot!
I know it isn't always like that. But you would be suprised at the number of shitheads who go specifically for that reason.

Also infidel, some associates that have their own dojos but are not black belts themselves are not permitted by their instructors to promote students. Thus promotions typically occur when the head instructor comes around for a seminar.Shut the hell up and train.

Let me put it this way.
Amaury Bitteti came by my old school a couple years ago. Mostly for the guys at our gym. But Bitetti wanted to recoup some costs for his travelling, and was staying with my instructor for a week. I think he was doing 4 hour seminar for like 50 bucks. Something like that. I actually don't remember.
But I tell a few people, and then post on a message board someplace. Suddenly everyone is like....is he going to be doing belt promotions?!?!?!?!
I was like, .......
I had dry heaves at a Vitor Shaolin seminar once. It was kinda cool. His conditioning routine and excersizes were not for the feint of heart. And not for someone who didn't eat breakfast.
Oh...and make sure the instructor speaks English. Nothing worse than listening to some Brazilian try to correct you and you not speaking Portugese. Well..actually there is something worse. And that is signing up to be Uke for 2x 4 hour seminars so you can get in free and getting fucking pounded.
